For some time last night, I laid and listened to the haunting howl of some creature,
longing to be heard.
It's howling echoed off the hills and ran together as if a song was being sung.
but misunderstood song.
how my heart feels.
I have this ache and desire to be heard by those I love-
a haunting heartache.
I can howl, even beautifully,
but as it echoes off the hills and then the mountains,
those close to me hear only the howl...and an eeriness to it.
They don't really understand me.
Or the sounds my heart makes.
I get the creature which howled through that lonely night.
it is beautiful.
